“Quantopia” is a riff on “Quantified Utopia” - a remix of two powerful terms. Plato first conceived of Utopia in his opus The Republic as a Socratic dialog, one of the foundations of Western philosophy. Utopia has a root term in "topos" - same root for "topology" or landscape. A dialog is a conversation, and of course, the Internet and the Web are the biggest conversations humanity has ever had. I wanted to make an acoustic portrait of the sheer impact of the...

A new film released this month on Netflix,  The Social Dilemma , is laying out a scathing case against Big Tech and will crystallize the issues for a global audience of tens of millions. So if the existing Internet infrastructure is terrible for us, what can take its place?...

The concept originated with Internet Archive founder Brewster Kahle's visit to China where he saw the Xian terra cotta warriors. Brewster has an idea: recognize those that have dedicated years to non-profit service by having an artist make sculptures of them. The collection of Ceramic Archivists is the result of almost five years of work. The artist is ceramic sculptor Nuala Creed . This project is unusual in many respects and it is multi-layered. The very notion of an artist being hired to...
